  • Descripción


    We are two owners (Guatemalan/American) that opened this hostel in 2014. We are well informed about Xela and we have the heart and desire to give you the best experience possible here with us. We want you to love Xela as much as we do, so our aim is to give you as much free time as possible between your shifts so that you can explore the city and its surroundings and truly get the know the beautiful nature and wonderful culture that this part of Guatemala has to offer.

    Our casa is a colonial style guest house that offers the best comfort of a home away from home. We have a spacious house in the historical center, with two gardens that you will never feel crowded in. We provide speedy wifi, hot showers, fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining room, and different parts of the house that you are always welcome to use.

    Xela is the best place in Guatemala to learn Spanish, you can get private lessons or attend one of the local schools for less money than you would normally spend. If you're looking for a more authentic experience of Guatemala, this is the place; 50% of the population are indigenous and the locals are very friendly. Xela has the commodities of a big city, but we're located in the heart of the historical centre, which is downtown latin style: big stone buildings, old houses and cobblestone streets and all the colors from Latin America. You'd have plenty of time off to go on various hikes around the city, many of them sacred to the Mayans and since we arrange the hikes and shuttles, you would get a discount when booking these as well.

  • Ayuda


    We're highly ranked online these days, so we need someone that likes people, that likes to help, as this is part of our philosophy. We believe in planting good karma among the people around us, and helping others. The position we offer requires 25 hours of work per week, helping out with administrative tasks such as keeping track of check ins and check outs, arranging shuttles and tours for guests and making sure the house looks neat and clean. It's a very chilled and non stressful job, but you'll need patience and a positive can do attitude, like in most customer facing roles.

    You will have a big chunk of the day to go out. Go sightseeing, volunteer in one of the projects from around the city or study Spanish. On your days off you can do a hike or visit a famous market or go to the hot springs. Salsa or bachata classes is also a popular choice, or quiz nights, going to the movies, taking yoga classes, going to the gym and most other things that a city usually offers!
